Speaker Series: Heard About Herps?
August 2 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Wonder what a ‘herp’ is? Herptile is a word that is used when talking about both reptiles and amphibians. These are two fascinating groups of animals, with many interesting adaptations and abilities. We will discuss common Ohio reptiles and amphibians, where they live, and how to identify them. Come ready to listen to frog calls, ID venomous Ohio snakes, and learn about Ohio’s silent amphibians!
